UI anthropologist, colleagues discover remains of earliest giant panda

... Chinese Academy of Sciences, shows that the basic anatomy of the giant panda has remained largely unchanged for millions of years. Ciochon says that the skull --, about one-half the size of a modern-day giant panda skull, but anatomically very similar -- indicates that the giant panda has evolved for mor...

Lithium builds gray matter in bipolar brains, UCLA study shows

The origin of the brain lies in a worm

...d out the research in Arendt's lab. "The molecular anatomy of the developing CNS turned out to be virtually the same in vertebrates and Platynereis. Corresponding regions give rise to neuron types with similar molecular fingerprints and these neurons also go on to form the same neural structures in annelid w...

Study suggests evolutionary link between diet, brain size in orangutans

...n adjunct professor of biological anthropology and anatomy at Duke, where he had worked for 15 years. "To our knowledge, this is the first such study to demonstrate a relationship between relative brain size and resource quality at this microevolutionary level in primates," they said. Such a change would...

Ohio University researchers discover evolutionary oddity in flamingos
